The Community of East Numb Polar Land is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 502 million East Numb Polar Landians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Snoozeville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.6%.

The very strong East Numb Polar Landian economy, worth 30.6 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 60,988 deniers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 312,256 per year while the poor average 6,540, a ratio of 47.7 to 1.

Police frequently raid drugstores in search of contraband bottles of New Spice aftershave, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites, and train stations can be 'armful places. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. East Numb Polar Land's national animal is the purple cougar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

East Numb Polar Land is ranked 212,652nd in the world and 10th in Bad Science for Most Secular, with 7.62 Atheism Rate.
